No one wants to be injured while using a swimming pool area, and this applies just as much to the staff who work there as it does to the people who visit. We may all have seen people who do not take proper care around a swimming pool, but accidents incurred by these types of people can very often be their fault. However not all accidents occur through the fault of the injured person.
This holds true for injured swimming pool staff for example. They should know how to behave properly around the pool area, but even if they take great pride and care in doing their job there is the potential for them still to suffer some kind of injury if they are unlucky. Every employer must ensure the workplace is safe to work in and is not posing a danger in any way.
In this case, there could be a variety of potential hazards that could lead to injury. For example you may not receive adequate training before you take on your job without supervision. If the tiles around the swimming pool are not kept in good condition you may end up cutting your foot or tripping over as a result.
Is it common for accidents like this to occur?
No it is actually very rare. This is due to the diligence and care taken by employers in this area. They know they must ensure their workplace is safe and that they provide proper training to all staff whenever it is required.
By maintaining high standards there is very little chance an accident or injury could happen that may have been prevented. They do not want to be negligent and thus few injuries occur in this situation, which is good to know.
